Title: Shirley's Art Works 791 -Chinese Mogu 034- Shirley's 186th Assignment in Chinese National Academy of Arts -Feb 14-22, 2013
Artist: Shirley Zhang
Size: 52cm (20.47inches) x 114cm (44.88inche)
Completed Time: Feb 22, 2013
Remarks:
This is my 34th Chinese Mogu Painting and my 791st painting since 2003. Also, it is my 186th assignment in Chinese National Academy of Arts.


May 5, 2012, I painted this Chinese rose from nature with pen in the garden near the school.

This week, Feb 14 to Feb 22, as soon as I had time, I worked on it and painted it as a Chinese Mogu Painting.

I wished to express the meaning of a famous line from a lyric by Zhang Xian in Song Dynastry (960 - 1279): 堝篤埖栖雑的唹 Yun Po Yue Lai Huo Nong Yin -- The Moon is Breaking the Clouds and the Flowers Are Playing With Their Own Shadows...

Do you know how I did the background of this painting? Water of the Chinese Tea, except I felt that the color of tea is stable, also I wished the painting has the smell of the Puer Tea, even though you will not be able to smell it after it is decorated. :-)

I do not satisfy it yet, I will try to paint it when I have time. Also, I will think of painting it with Chinese Gongbi style some day. :-)
